Introducing the awe-inspiring Leopard, the fourth release in the esteemed Big Five Series II. Crafted with utmost precision, this remarkable coin is struck in one Troy ounce of 99.95% pure platinum by the prestigious South African Mint. Renowned for their iconic gold and silver Krugerrands, the South African Mint delivers yet another masterpiece.
The obverse of this legal-tender 5-Rand coin showcases the commanding head of a Leopard, exuding strength and grace. On the reverse, a truly unique design unfolds—a bisected image of a Leopard's profile. Placing multiple coins side by side forms a captivating close-up portrait, allowing you to immerse yourself in the magnificence of this majestic creature. Should you dare to touch, don some thin white gloves and run your fingers across the rugged design—its texture almost mimics the sensation of caressing the thick, spotted fur of a real Leopard!
To further elevate their allure, these Platinum Krugerrand Proofs are securely sonically sealed in acrylic holders, featuring white display cores. Each coin is encapsulated with labels personally signed by Honey Mamabolo, the esteemed Managing Director at the South African Mint. The inclusion of these labels is a testament to their limited availability, as only a small allocation is designated for program releases. Thus, they bestow an additional layer of scarcity and exclusivity upon this extraordinary coin, enhancing its desirability for collectors.
